Amy reads Just Ask! by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, illustrated by Rafael López, and published by Philomel Books. Read by permission of Penguin Group.
This book is about disabilities or health challenges that kids might see in their classmates, around town, or might live with themselves. But the message of this book is that despite the challenges each child faces, they all come together to plant and care for a beautiful garden.
Afterwards, Amy demonstrates how to make a “garden critter”. It’s not quite a bug, or a mole–it’s a critter, and each one is unique in its own way!
